The summer holidays are nearly over, so as the sun was shining we had a trip to East Links Family Park just outside Dunbar in East Lothian. When we turned off the main road we drove by a vast field of brussel sprouts. Brussel sprouts are a bit of a marmite food, love them/hate them and personally I am not a great fan. Schools and hospitals see the need to boil them until they are have lost all nutrient value, are water logged and generally unappealing. If I do eat them I prefer them slightly underdone so the risk of them becoming soggy is reduced to the minimum. I then eat them first so I can enjoy the rest of the meal! Yes, it makes me sound like a child, but adults are just big kids.
If any non sprout lovers have a recipe that involves sprouts and is tasty, I would love to hear about it.
